Waterfall through red Rhyolite in Iceland

Rhyolite Falls

Fjallabak, Iceland

The first day of my trip to the Southern Highlands of Iceland turned out to be the only day without any sunshine! I hiked for a couple of miles and made 200m ascent up to this point, a relatively easy start to my hike. The waterfall itself lies in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve, a massive wilderness area with a couple of 4x4 tracks and the countries most famous trail, the Laugavegur, passing through. This was taken on the southern edge of the famous Rhyolite hills which can be richly coloured in reds, yellows, oranges and even greens and blues. The Rhyolite is incredibly soft and small rivers can create deep valleys and high waterfalls, this being good example.
